Venom 2 Cast Grows and the Sequel May Be Rated R

-

The Venom 2 cast is growing with the addition of Boardwalk Empire actor Stephen Graham, according to Deadline. The site says it is unknown who Graham is playing in the Andy Serkis-directed sequel, however. The actor’s credits include This Is England and its sequels, SnatchGangs of New YorkLine of Duty and the Pirates of the Caribbean films. He can currently be seen in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman on Netflix.

He joins a Venom 2 cast that also includes Tom Hardy in the title role, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady/Carnage, and Naomie Harris as Shriek.

In related news, Cinema Blend spoke to producer Matt Tolmach, who revealed that the sequel may be rated R following the box office success of Joker. “I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anybody is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]!’ We have a place in the world. So it isn’t like suddenly everybody’s considering what to do with the rating.”

He added: “I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden… So you know, I think it’s the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling.”

Kelly Marcel (Disney’s upcoming CruellaFifty Shades of Grey) wrote the script for Venom 2. Marcel, who will also executive produce the movie, was one of the screenwriters on the first film. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce again.

Venom (buy here) tells the evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character. Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancee. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom.
